      Did you delete SheepShaver's prefs file, an invisible file at the root level of the user's Home folder, titled ".SheepShaver_Prefs"? The installer should delete any old prefs file automatically, but that might not have worked this time.

      I'll look at that this weekend. But SheepShaver rarely crashes here.

      I see a startup items folder in the system folder of the SheepShaver disk image, containing two Applescripts, "SS Startup" and "~Open WP Files". I didn't put an alias to WP in this folder, since SS Startup runs Disk First Aid, which stops its check if there's other disk activity, such as launching WP.

      I have a line in the SS Startup script that starts WP after the disk check, and disabled that for some reason. I'll enable that again and test it this weekend.
